Description FunPika 2008-09-29 10:29:48 UTC
When attempting to place a restriction on a whole IP range (which someone said they would like to be able to do on ), the Special:RestrictUser page appears to give a "User not found" error.
Comment 1 FunPika 2008-09-30 10:32:07 UTC
The feature doesn't even exist any more per r41405. 
Comment 2 Philippe Verdy 2010-04-14 12:23:17 UTC
OK, for IPv4, only 1 IP is restricted. But for IPv6, the minimum granularity should be a 64-bit range (for IPv6 addresses assigned to customers) and possibly smaller only for IPv6/IPv4 tunnels (like those initiated through Teredo and 6to4 servers, unless you restrict them like the proxies they really are)
